The Washington Redskins finally got their new owner, who's paying more money for a franchise than anyone in sports history. During their spring meetings, NFL owners voted, 31-0, yesterday to approve the sale of the Redskins to Daniel Snyder for $800 million from the trustees of the estate of Jack Kent Cooke. Snyder was a member of the group headed by Howard Milstein that withdrew its bid after it became apparent the owners wouldn't approve it. "This is a life-long dream," Snyder said.

Giants at Redskins 8:30 p.m., ESPN. Line: Giants by 3. The skinny: Daniel Snyder likes his team in the spotlight, but his largely unsuccessful 13 years as Redskins owner have been a Monday night wipeout. Washington has lost 10 straight home Monday night games, nine of them with Snyder as owner. Now, at last, the Redskins have a leader suited for the big show. If anyone can end what tight end Chris Cooley jokingly referred to as "the Monday night curse," it's rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III. The stakes could hardly be bigger for this season's Redskins (5-6)

Daniel Snyder cleared a big hurdle yesterday in his bid to own the Washington Redskins, all but ending a dispute involving one of the NFL's most prominent teams. The league's finance committee voted unanimously to recommend that the team be sold to the 34-year-old Snyder for a record $800 million. The recommendation by the eight-member committee, meeting in New York and chaired by New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, is crucial. The full ownership will vote on the sale at a league meeting in Atlanta on Tuesday.

IT'S A CHEAP laugh, but it is funny. Maxim listed Manti Te'o's imaginary girlfriend on its "Hot 100" list. Te'o, of course, is the Notre Dame linebacker who made headlines when it was discovered his long-term girlfriend wasn't real. Now, she's making headlines of her own. Te'o was drafted in the second round - No. 38 overall - by the San Diego Chargers. His girlfriend was selected 69th, which is amazing, considering she beat out 31 "real" women. On the mag's website is a photo of each hottie and her name.

Jim Zorn was surprised when he was asked to interview for the Washington Redskins' head coaching job. In an even bigger surprise, he wound up being hired. Zorn, a former NFL quarterback and Seattle Seahawks assistant, was introduced yesterday as the successor to Hall of Fame coach Joe Gibbs, two weeks after being named the team's offensive coordinator and two days after an unexpected interview request from team owner Daniel Snyder. Snyder interviewed nine other candidates after Gibbs' retirement Jan. 8 before asking Zorn to come to his home for lunch.

Marshall Faulk is back to his no-deal, no-show stance. While the running back waits for his contract to be reworked, he's sitting out the St. Louis Rams' minicamp that began yesterday. Coach Dick Vermeil said it was out of sight, out of mind. "Yeah, I'm disappointed he's not here, but that's his prerogative," Vermeil said. "I thought he would be here, but he and his agent made that decision. "As far as I'm concerned, it's a dead issue. He is not the topic of conversation around here.

Marty Schottenheimer and the Washington Redskins reportedly could go their separate ways as early as today. The Redskins and their coach are close to finalizing a buyout of his contract, CBS SportsLine.com reported, citing a league source. The Redskins last night denied that a deal was in the works. The Redskins went 8-8 in their first year under Schottenheimer, who has three years and $7.5 million remaining on his contract. The source said the buyout would be for about $5 million.

Daniel Snyder needs 24 votes to become the owner of the Washington Redskins for a record $800 million. He launched his appeal with a promise heard often on the campaign trail: job security for all. Immediately after an agreement was announced yesterday for Snyder's group to buy the team and Jack Kent Cooke Stadium for the record price for any sports franchise, the 34-year-old communications executive and lifelong Redskins fan promised to retain...

The estate of Jack Kent Cooke agreed yesterday to sell the Washington Redskins and their football stadium to a group led by businessman Daniel Snyder for $800 million.

His partners would include media mogul Mortimer B. Zuckerman, Zuckerman associate Fred Drasner, and Snyder family members. Twenty-four of the National Football League's 31 owners must approve the sale for it to become official.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was a little busy last week as he prepared to explain to an appeals judge his finger-in-the-wind decision process regarding the suspension and re-suspension of Baltimore running back Ray Rice. Even so, Goodell must have noticed that one of the league's owners, Washington's Daniel Snyder, was suing five Native Americans for the crime of being upset about the "Redskins" team nickname. If he wins the suit, maybe Snyder can take their land and force them to live in a fenced-in section of the FedEx Field parking lot. Not much of a view, but, hey, no income tax. The five activists, perhaps to their own surprise, won a ruling earlier this year from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that canceled six of the team's trademarks that used the word "Redskins," with the ruling board stating it did so because the word was "disparaging to Native Americans.

IT'S NOT AGAINST the law to be unimaginative or uncaring. So I won't join others in calling for the head of Daniel Snyder, billionaire owner of the Washington Redskins, for refusing to change the team's name to something racially inoffensive. If the man hasn't the capacity to imagine or care that the Redskins name might be hurtful to Native Americans, well, so be it. Besides, he's a rich Jew and that's just what those people do, right? Use their fast hands to take what they want, with no thought for who gets knocked down in the grab?

THE LATE POP STAR Michael Jackson sang to us to look at "The Man in the Mirror. " The song of the same title told us that if we wanted to make the world a better place, "take a look at look at yourself and then make a change. " I'm making a change. It's not earth-shattering. It probably won't make much difference to a lot of people other than me. But it's something I can do. It's something that I chose to do. After 48-plus years of life, 25 years as a full-time sports reporter, 20 years at the Daily News and nearly 19 years as a sports columnist here, I no longer will consciously used the official name of the NFL team in Washington.

Redskins owner Daniel Snyder refuses to change the name of his team. Should we do it for him? More specifically, should the media no longer recognize the official designation? A former chair of the Federal Communications Commission recently told me the answer is yes. "I would like to suggest something to you: Why don't you in your own job think about not using the derogatory name that Mr. Snyder has chosen?" Reed Hundt asked. "Why not? Why doesn't it start on a person-by-person basis?

Joshua Harris can learn a lot from Mark Cuban. Ten years ago - even five years ago - the notion that Cuban could be the model for a prospective NBA owner would have seemed preposterous. When he bought the Mavericks, Cuban was a brilliant but brash billionaire - a successful businessman who didn't know what he didn't know about basketball. He bristled when challenged and fought (and picked) more fights than was remotely advisable. Shortly after he took control of the team, I interviewed him for a lengthy profile.

Contrary to some popular belief, the Washington Redskins' name isn't just an inaccurate reference to a race's skin pigmentation - it's a nickname for a genocide, according to Suzan Shown Harjo. Harjo, a Cheyenne and Native American activist, spoke at the University of Pennsylvania Museum on Thursday, as the Eagles prepared to host the Redskins. She is the lead plaintiff in a case against the Redskins that has been in the courts since 1992. The next appeal hearings are scheduled for February, and both the plaintiffs and Redskins owner Daniel Snyder have vowed to go to the Supreme Court if necessary.
